mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2005
bottle. pitch black, small head. sweet chocolate aroma, roasted malt, and a hint of coffee. highly carbonated, thin body. flavour is rather sweet, malty, and high in alcohol. This stout just didn’t do anything for me.

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2005
Near black with a slim tan head. Coffee and liquorice aroma. Sweet, roasted, coffee and cola taste. Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Well hidden alcohol, detected only in the warming finish. Pretty good.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2005
Bottled. Black/red colour, with a small head. Coffeish, slightly roastmalty aroma with a hint of something between cola and fruitiness. Tastes sweet, coffeish, roastmalty with notes of cola and cherries. Very nice, not as good as the Guinness Special Export I had, but still pretty nice.

shadey (2073) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Black color with red around the edges. Little to no head. Aroma was sweet licorice and roast. Mouthfeel was smooth with a tangy finish. Very easy to drink and quite nice.

Rapidly diminishing medium head. Aroma of sweet malt and a bit of fruit. Lighter than usual body for a stout. Malt and light coffee taste.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2005
From the bottle it pours a bit lighter than most stouts with twinges of red. Mouthfeel is light to medium with some roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Something tastes a bit off though, perhaps just a bit sour or lactic but really sweet.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Deep, deep ruby - almost to the point of being black. head disappears quickly. Nose is cherry cola, a bit of bitterness. Really sweet. Cola continues, with alcohol and artificial cherry. Good but too damn sweet!

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2005
Bought in the bottle form a Russian bar (can’t recall name) on New Years Eve in Derby. Black colour. Quite fizzy & sweet for a stout. Pretty stickt too, but not bad for all that. Nice to have a bottle of it but I certainly wouldn’t want to much...

MrDick (363) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
I drank way to much of this while vacationing in Belize. It was the only decent beer (compared to Belikin Stout) that I could find in the local markets. From the first sip, I thought that this stout tasted like Kahlua. Very sweet with coffee, plum and chocolate flavors. This was an amazing pairing with some chocolate chips cookies!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Typical stout appearance. Aroma of malts, licorice and milk chocolate. Semi sweet chocolate, dry bitter roasted barley. Partially sweet cocoa and milk finish.
